Fort William, Walking & H...

Fort William is an ideal base for hill walkers and ramblers alike. It’s proximity to high mountain ranges, forests and two of Scotland’s most famous long distance walking routes means it’s hard to beat. The area in terms of variety is simply world class.

The magnificent Mamores range with its ten Munro’s provide a daunting challenge for those intent on conquering them all within a day. Most mortals settle for achieving this goal over two or three days. Ben Nevis, Scotland’s and indeed the UK’s highest mountain at 4344 metres is undoubtedly a major draw for seasoned mountaineers and the occasional tourist wearing sandals. Even though it’s a bit of a tourist maul it’s particularly worth the effort if combined with Carn Mor Dearg. The two mountains are connected via Carn Mor Dearg Arête which gives fabulous views of the Ben’s long ridges, steep gullies and deep corries. This is the side the climbers come up.

With Ben Nevis, the Mamores and Grey Corrie ranges on the doorstep, Glencoe just half an hour away and many other great walking locations within a short distance, it’s not surprising that some prominent mountaineers have chosen Fort William as their permanent base.
